Argentina and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) striker Lionel Messi has the most expensive collection of cars among the highest-paid football stars in the world.
And that should come as no surprise as the PSG star now earns an annual salary of around $75 million and an annual income of $110 million, if his endorsements are added.
Messi may not be one to show off as his closest rival, CR7, but he’s said to have a collection worth over $35m – over $10m worth of more … than The Cristiano Ronaldo collection.
Let’s take a look at some of the luxury cars from Messi’s collection.
1. 1957 Ferrari 335 S Scaglietti Spider
The Ferrari 335 S Spider Scaglietti is the most expensive car in Messi’s garage. According to Goal.Com, Messi bought the car at auction for a whopping $36 million, beating rival Cristiano Ronaldo at the auction.

The legendary Pagani Zonda Roadster is not only one of the most extravagant cars in Messi’s collection, but also one of the most expensive and fastest cars in the world.
